Welcome to Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Southern California Chapter website. We are glad that you have reached your premier destination for all things HIMSS Southern California! Our membership spans Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Imperial, Kern, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties with over 3,000 members.
HIMSS enters its 57th year in operation with over 64,000 individual members and about 2/3 in healthcare. HIMSS has truly set the standard for healthcare information systems, particularly with providing exceptional educational content, networking, advocacy, and many other value-added services surrounding privacy and security, patient engagement, and clinical informatics.
This year, our theme is engaging millennials, Women in Health IT (WHIT) and providers. Our Academic Alliance Community is working on arranging more outreach activities with the academic institutions in the area to integrate students and emerging professionals into our network. Additionally, we will be kicking off our first WHIT event this Winter. WHIT will provide a platform for women to connect with peers while learning from empowering women in our field. Our CMIO Committee was launched last year and will be providing more events and programs on innovations in health technology.
